Morellino di Sancansano DOC Sg Alicante le Pupille Magliano In Toscana 2002

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Advocate ReviewThe estates Morellino di Scansano Poggio Valente, a single-vineyard selection, is made from a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Alicante and aged in barrique. The 2003 Morellino di Scansano Poggio Valente is big, powerful and somewhat monolithic, showing good dark cherry fruit although its hard tannins give it a rough around the edges quality. Still, it is a more than respectable showing from this difficult vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2012.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
